I bought this car less than a year ago and really like it. However, due to its age the tire inflation numbers are worn off of the front door and I'm not sure how high to inflate them. Obviously, I'd like to inflate them to where I get the best mileage possible. I contacted the Cooper Tires but they told me to look at my door or manual, which I also do not have. Can you help me out?

Check the tire itself it says there what max air pressure is. Look for the smaller letter round tires where you read max pressure psi. What I do know is if your car has original rims the size of rim is 14 and tires are 185/75-14 and normally tire pressure on original equpment is 44psi but dont inflate to 44 inflate to 40 or 41.44 is only max pressure and tires will expand with summer heat so 40 to 41 is perfect. Thats if u have original size equipment. Check wall of tire, its the best thing you can do. Just read the letters on it and u will firnd the max pressure psi etc. But remember if it says 44 make it 40 41 or if it says 36 make it 32.
